Donna was a proud member of the Fab Five and the Three Musketeers, two groups of her very close friends at Aldersgate. She was a talented seamstress, pianist, and knitter. She enjoyed playing a variety of board games and puzzles, from Mahjong to Monopoly. Donna loved flowers, butterflies, and angels which were present both throughout the house and in the Thomas Kinkade paintings that she loved so much. She loved spending time with family and hosting countless Sunday lunches and holiday dinners in her home.
